Lot #290. Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 96 RP.
"Beaucastel’s 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvèdre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more . . . . One of the great estates of the Rhône Valley, Château de Beaucastel has been run by several generations of the Perrin family, beginning with the late Jacques Perrin (who died in 1978), then the brothers Jean-Pierre and François, and now their sons Thomas, Marc, Pierre, and Mathieu. Beaucastel has nearly 200 acres in vine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape . . ." Wine Advocate #185, Oct 2009
